I personally wanted to write you and thank you for the wonderful job you did on our muzzleloader. I can’t get over how great it shoots and how lethal it is. As a female hunter, I could handle the muzzleloader well and had no issues using it in the field. I harvested my first bull elk with this bad boy and the bull only took 2-3 steps before falling over. It was a quick, clean kill. My husband and I are already looking to go on more muzzleloader hunts now that we have such an accurate and reliable weapon added to our arsenal. Thanks again for building us a quality firearm! We will gladly give you more business in the future and recommend ya’ll to our friends/family.
Thanks again for the spectacular gun! Here is me sighting the new scope in where I was printing ½ moa groups all morning with the largest group going ¾ moa. Your load data and velocity confirmed with a different lot of IMR-3130. You can tell it was getting a complete burn because my SD for 15 shots was 7 fps! I could have never imagined a muzzleloader delivering this kind of precision and consistency. The 18 twist barrel, powder charge, and 300gr. Pittman aeromax is an amazing combination.
I bedded a Ken Farrell G-Force base w/ recoil lug, and topped it off with a 4.5-18x Bushnell LRTSI in Badger Ordnance max-50 rings. I have ultimate confidence in this gun. I will post some 200 yard groups when I get back in town.
Let me know when the updated breech plugs come in and we will also put in an order for the primer module cutter.
I'm sorry that the pictures didn't get to you; but I'm resending. Charlie if you put either of these pictures on your web site I would offer a caption something like this:" Not much of a trophy buck but the shot of a life time and perhaps the biggest trophy ever ". Charlie I've been working for years to get to the point that I could make this 960 yard killing shot and it finally happened. It would not have happened without the innovative work that you do!!! Thank you so much for all your hard work, technical information, support and friendship. This could be a "World Record" and it would have never happened without Ashland Gun Innovations!!! Great gun!!!!
My 17 yr old daughter got her first deer ever Saturday evening with 30 minutes left in the season. It was also the first time ever she had pulled the trigger on a muzzle loader.
It was just a spike and was only a lil over 150 yds....but dark was approaching and she decided to take it. The deer dropped instantly.

Dropped this 240lb Illinois stud at 225 yds. Your gun did its job. Thanks again.

Just wanted to send you a quick email and tell you thanks for building this awesome muzzleloader.
This deer I shot 11/8/14 could not have ever happened with a ordinary muzzleloader, he was 275 yards from my stand and upon being shot went only 40 yards.

This whitetail was shot at 257 ranged yards with my Ashland Gun Innovations 45 cal Muzzleloader. I dialed 260 on the elevation and sent one on its way. I've done some work at longer distances with the gun so I knew this was a chip shot. No way this would have happened with my Savage smokeless muzzleloader - I would have had to watch him walk away. See attached - deer scored 168. Thanks for building a precision long range muzzleloader!
